Cover design for an unidentified magazine. A handsome painting of a boy's daydreams as a lifeguard and whose composition is reminiscent of J. C. Leyendecker's Saturday Evening Post covers. By 1941, Mat Kauten was selling realistic cover designs to the pulp magazines. He got into trouble as a conscientious objector in World War II and continued his anti-war activities during the Korean War. He studied architecture with Frank Lloyd and designed several modernized homes in the 1960s
